Yoga 900 USB-C to DisplayPort won´t work

Hi!

 

I am trying to connect my Yoga 900 13-isk 80mk to a Samsung SA850 27 inch screen through the usb-c port on the computer, via a Kanex usb-c to display port adapter and a display port cable.

The computer  finds the screen, it even says Samsung SA850 on the detected screen, but I can´t extend the display to it, cone it or just use the external display.

Windows 10 tries to connect to the Samsung display, it asks if I want to keep the settings, and the image just shows on the Yoga 900 like nothing has happend.

 

I have tried a couple of cables, and it seems the usb-c to display port adapter is working, or Win 10 wouldn´t find the Samsung display.

I have tried rebooting, checking the drivers, disconnecting and connecting the cables and adapter several times..

Anyone have any suggestions?

Hi gjkristi,

 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the forum!

 

Do you have a link to the Kanex USB-C adapter you're using?
